Priority Pass: The college question

February 06, 2017

TORONTO, ONT. -- Yeah, there's still no shortage of playoff hockey left to be played. And yeah, the OHL Cup is still a month away from happening.

 

But if you look closely, you'll notice that April 8th isn't all that far away anymore. 

 

As OHL teams really start to ramp up their preparations for 2017's edition of the Priority Selection, we're going to start delving into some deeper thoughts as to how the actual draft may play out, and the variables that need to be taken into consideration as the draft day approaches.

 

To start the series off, we're going to focus on the annual question that has perhaps more of an impact than any other: How do NCAA committed players factor into the draft? There's no shortage of players who fit the bill this year, and expect the list to continue to grow over the next couple of months as college's look to lock in their key targets prior to the draft.
